If you are an investor interested in opening a company in Gibraltar, you should know that that the business environment here is welcoming, with a low tax regime for companies
 

History of the VAT in Gibraltar

 
Gibraltar has a low tax regime and in terms of company formation there are many advantages, as the taxation system is free of value added tax. Although the law of Gibraltar is based on the United Kingdom’s legal system, in terms of taxation is completely separate. 
In the European Union, value added tax is one of the compulsory taxes and all member states must align to certain VAT rules, but for this state the principle does not apply. 
 
United Kingdom became a part of the European Economic Community in 1973 and so did Gibraltar. Although normally Gibraltar should have complied with the European tax laws, this never happened as a result of the fact that the state did not join Customs Union (the main body regulating VAT levels throughout Europe). For this reason, Gibraltarian government didn’t have to impose a VAT on its territory.
 
As such, Gibraltar represents a point of interest for tourists, as prices on luxury products are much lower, but also for entrepreneurs interested in company formation in Gibraltar, as the corporate tax regime presents a series of financial advantages
